About

Hi! I’m Dylan.

After graduating high school in 2005 I started learning how to build websites because I loved how the internet had the ability to connect people from all over the world through shared interests and causes. Two years later in 2007 a newspaper in Kansas saw some of my work, interviewed and offered me a position as an online media consultant, selling websites to local businesses as well as building websites for their established advertisers. I continued working in the corporate world until 2011 when I had a profound realization about the way I wanted to live and offer my skills and service to others. I was reading the teachings of Jesus Christ in the gospel of St. Matthew, when one line jumped out to me: “…freely you have received; freely give.” That statement spoke deeply to me not only in the area of ministry, but as a universal truth. It struck me that life itself is a free gift of God which I have received; therefore, in the way of the wandering monk, I am alive to offer what I am able to do in life as a free gift to others. Likewise, I freely receive what those whom I serve would like to give to me in return.

It is this philosophy which has lead to the creation of Freely Give Studio, a media services company with a mission to provide churches, ministries, nonprofits and good causes with the tools they need to communicate and connect with the world.

If you need help with creating and developing a website, engaging on social media platforms or have questions about using technology, please do not hesitate to ask.

I would be honored to serve you,
Dylan Raines
